READY FOR ARGUMENT.
Closing Testimony in the AVelch
Case — Old Letters Read.
When court took up the Welch libel
case yesterday morning. Judge Hicks
announced that he had made a mistake
the previous day in allowing the intro
duction of testimony serving as grounds
upon which to have reasonable excuse
or a justification of the alleged libel
and that all of such evidence would be
stricken from the records. He
then decided that the proof of
the truth of the alleged libel
should first be. produced before
any species of justification could be ad
vanced. Col. Sessions, counsel for the
defense, the raised the question of what
position Mr.Erwin occupied in this case.
He said the law very plainly says that
the county attorney may have assist
ance, but the county shall not pay
for lt; the law also commands that
tin; county attorney shall not have the
advantage of counsel paid for by per
sons not a party to the suit. Mr. Erwin
was then asked to take the stand. Col.
Sessions asked him the following ques
tion: . ...
"Do you appear as an attorney in this
case?" , „
Mr. Davis objected, and Col. Sessions
detailed what he expected to prove by
the witness. It was to the effect that he
had been employed by W. F. Vilas to
work up the case and press the prosecu
tion. He then read as to the question
of law involved in a report of a similar
case in Wisconsin. The result of this
discussion was that the court con
cluded that this was a vital
question and that an Improper rul
ing on this point might cause
a new trial of the case,and consequently
he would adjourn the court until 2
o'clock and consult some authorities on
the question. When court was recon
vened Judge Hicks denied the motion
to exclude Mr. Erwin from the case.
Duel E. Hutchinson was put on the
stand by the state in rebuttal. The
letters whicii passed between Hutchin
son and Welch in regard to
the wrecking of the insurance
company were "then read, which reading
took up most of the afternoon. Mr,
Welch read the letters written by him
self, which were mostly letters of in
quiry. The replies were read by the
witness, Hutchinson. The reading of
these letters by the authors themselves
brought out every point to its best ad
vantage. After the reading of these
letters, one written by the defendant
to David Atwood, the president
of the company, was read and
then his reply, followed by a second
from the defendant. In the first letter
the defendant asked what had become
of the surplus and what amount had
been paid Vilas, and the reply was that
he was entirely ignorant of any pay
ments Having been made to Vilas or
any one else, and as to the disposition
of the surplus he could give no infor
mation, In the second letter Welch
calls Atwood's attention to the fact that
if his statements in his last letter were
true then he had been grossly libeled
by Insurance Commissioner Spooner in
his report made June, 1879.
The witness (Hutchinson) was then
asked to state how much each director
received from the surplus fund. The
defense objected because in one of his
letters lie said he could not remember,
and if he had made an estimate from
any books he might have in his posses
sion, then the books were the best evi
dence and they should be produced.
The witness stated that he, as secretary
of the company, made these payments
himself and remembered what they
were, but at the time he wrote the let
ter spoken of he had not seen the books
for some years and consequently he did
not feel safe in stating the exact
amounts. That since then lie had re
freshed his memory and could give the
exact amounts from memory.
"Do you not use the book as the basis
for these calculations?" asked Col. Ses
"No, sir," answered the witness; "1
made those payments and remember
what they were without reference to
the books." lie then took a paper out
of his pocket and read off the following
statement: "The surplus fund of
823,000 was divided as follows: Vilas.
c 4,140; Brown, $11,500; Proudfoot,
¥4,000; Fox, "MOO; Dudley, $1,150;
Hutchinson, $1,150. Atwood did
not receive anything." Col. Session
then stepped up to the witness and
asked to look at the paper, wiiich was
handed him. He then said: "As you
say you remember what these payments
were, now tell me the amount each one
received as 1 read off the names." He
then read of the names of Vilas, Brown,
Proudfoot and Dudley. The witness
got the amounts right for two of them,
but failed on the other two. This
caused Col. Session to break out into a
lend guffaw, and he told the witness
which two were wrong. The witness
managed to correct one amount, but
hopelessly stuck on the other. Col. Ses
sions advised the witness to again re
fresh his memory, and said they were
through with him.
This closes the evidence in the case,
and the prosecution will sum up tne
case at 9:30 this forenoon.
But an Air of Deepest Mystery
Enshrouded the Meeting..
The great indignation meeting that
has been discussed so much the past
few days in reference to the resignation
of Bey! J. J. Hall from the Free Baptist
church, took place last night and turned
out to be a very tame and unimportant
event after all. It partook of the nature
of a star-chamber sitting, and as it had
a good deal of the ludicrous about it, it
will not be amiss to state the simple
facts as they occurred. The meeting
was held in the small room, ante-cham
bers to the lecture hall in the basement.
To have heard some of the trustees
talk, one would have supposed the
whole congregation would have turned
out en masse, but, as it was, about thirty
people, the majority of them ladies,
were presenter, d commenced discussing
the burning question. Just at this
point of the proceedings a newspaper
man entered and modestly sat
down in a corner, but his modesty
availed him nothing; his presence
froze the burning question, and he en
tered just in time to participate in an im
promptu prayer that was started the
minute his entrance became known.
Singing hymns was largely indulged in,
but evidently as a mild diversion from
the mysterious whispering going on all
the time. After this playful deception
had been kept going for an hour or so,
Rev. Hall pronounced a benediction,
and to all intents "and purposes the
meeting was over. During the lull
In the proceedings the reverend gentle
man was seen and seemed willing to im
part information, but deprecated being
quoted on the subject of his resignation.
"1 think," he said, "they will do some
thing to-night, but I don't care one way
or the other what they do." He was
then sharply called to the star chamber,
nnd a lynx-eyed, Dundreary-appearing
gentleman escorted the newspaper men
the door, which he carefully and
mysteriously bolted after their exit. .
The whole proceedings iv this case are,
to say the least, curious. Why such
secrecy should enwrap such an innocent
matter as the resignation of a person
from his charge is one of those unsolv
able things that are created for un
known, but doubtless beneficent ends.
It will now be in order to look about a
year hence for the indignation resolu
tions promulgated last night.
A PLEASANT DAY OF IT
Made by the Presbyterian Ladies'
The third annual meeting of the
Woman's Presbyterial society of home
missions of St. Paul Presbytery met
yesterday in Andrew church on the
"East side, and a large number were in
attendance. The morning session was
principally given up to greetings and
prayer, in which Mrs. B. F. MacLoren
led the opening devotional exercises,
and Mrs. M. H. Welles gave
the "Welcome," responded to by
Mrs. A. W. Bingland. The afternoon
exercises opened auspiciously, the
chinch being full of ladies and young
boys who took an active part in the pro
gramme. After the reading of the
Scriptures and prayer, Mrs. G. B. Met
calf read an interesting paper on
"Thoughtful Giving." Miss Josie M.
Nicol recited in a very taking manner
a pretty piece, and following her, fig
urative! v speaking, the juveniles were
given the floor. These little gentlemen
acquitted themselves in a commendable
manher,-and were frequently applauded.
Among the little fellows there are many
societies, and yesterday reports were
read by the Alaskan Auxiliary band,
the Golden Rule band, the Pearl Gath
erers band, present with a handsome
banner, and minster Missionary
Boys' brigade. These latter made a
very fine showing. Willie Nay read
the report, which went to show that
they are educating a colored boy down
South. The cost is 550 a year, of which
they have already subscribed §30. After
wards Harry Teel, Harry Hume. Frank
Burt, Frank I'omerov, Arthur Davis
and Frank Polk, all bright little
members of the brigade, gave
short recitations. Bobert Dysart
of the band of East St. Paul church, St.
Paul, read flic report from his organiza
tion. .Mrs. Ell Torrance in her report
as secretary showed there were forty-six
organizations — twenty -one of them
ladies' societies, sixteen are bands, and
nine Sabbath school organizations.
There were present delegates from Du
luth, Hastings, Bed Wing, Litchfield,
St. Sroix Falls, White Bear and St. Paul.
The state of the society was flourishing,
as proved by the report of the treasurer,
Mrs. D. B. Noyes, which goes to
show that the total contributions
for ISS7 were 195.37, as
against §1,998.93 in 1886, and the
showing ofthe missionary boxes in 1887
was §4,508.73, as against §2,150.80 during
1880. This was received with great ap
plause and was of course very satis
factory,showing a doubling ofthe funds
in one short year. All the old officers
were re-elected, so the ticket read thusly :
President, Mrs. E. F. Pomeroy; first
vice president, Mrs. T. A. Mac Curdy;
second vice president, Mrs. A. W. Ring
land; Duluth; corresponding secretary,
Mrs. Ell Torrance; recording secretary,
Mrs. A. N. Elliott.
Resolutions were adopted thanking
the ladies of Andrew Church for the ac
commodation of the sacred edifice. The
benediction was pronounced by Bey.
Dr. Donelson, and that brought the
afternoon session to a close. The
church was handsomely decorated with
flowers around the reading desk and on
stands, and the touch of feminine hands
could be seen everywhere, making the
building bright and cheerful looking.
At the evening session very pleasant
and Interesting addresses were given
by Drs. Mac Curdy, Patterson and
Campbell on the subject of mission
work, some excellent music was ren
dered, and a very pleasant evening was
enjoyed. To-day will be the last of the
conference, and the business .. to be
transacted will be altogether confined
to foreign missions.
AN EVENING OF PLEASURE.
Civil Engineers Visit the College
of Mechanic Arts of the Univer
sity. .7 : : 7;
The Minneapolis: society of civil en
gineers and the St. Paul society met at
the College of Mechanic Arts and Arti
san's Training school of the state uni
versity last evening, and were taken all
through the building by Profs. Pike,
Bard and lloag. The visit was a pleasant
one and will be long remembered. About
7:30 the joint meeting was called to
order by Prof. Pike, who made a short
address, in which he outlined the work
that was being done by the students and
showed what a benefit it was to them.
The party then started on a tour through
the building. The mechanical drawing
room was first visited, and many of tlie
visitors expressed considerable surprise
at the artistic and meritorious work
shown them. The instrument room,
where all the surveying instruments are
kept, was next visited. Here the various
methods used in surveying were ex
plained and discussed. In this
room wood carving is carried on,
and many handsome specimens of work
done by pupils were exhibited. From
here the party went to the machine and
vise shop, in the basement, where a
force of student workmen was busily
engaged in the manufacture of ma
chinery, engines and the like. The
scene was a lively one, and differed ma
terially from that of the ordinary ma
chine shop,in that everything was clean,
the floors being white and free from
stain. The party spent about half
an hour in this room and then
adjourned to the testing room, where
materials are tested and comparative
strength of various kinds of wood and
iron are illustrated. The students at
work in this room were Sam G. Neiter,
B. L. Locreand John Morris. The test
ing machine was called into use first on
a piece of white pine scantling, 4x4
inches, and six and a half feet between
rests. This stood a strain of 3,080
pounds before it' broke.
Next a piece of common refined iron
rod, one inch in thickness and eight
inches between points, was placed in
the testing machine and the power ap
plied. The limit of elasticity was
reached at 1-100 part of an inch. As
the power kept increasing the iron bar
kept gradually stretching out, and when
43,200 pounds had been marked it parted
with a snap that might have been heard
some distance away. When the. rod
cooled down so that the broken edges
might be touched, it was found that the
break was nearly as smooth as it would
have been had it been cut with a cold
chisel. The visitors were shown various
pieces of iron and wood which had been
subjected to similar tests, and the va
rious peculiarities pointed out. The
foundry and the forges were next
visited and everything .of interest
pointed out. Among the gentlemen
present from the Minneapolis society
were Messrs. Sublette, Barr, Craig, Cris
mau, Pike, Hoag, Pardee, Newman,*
Turner, Begley, Banford and Capellan.
St. Paul was represented by A. Johnson,
A. Minister, S. D. Munson, W. A.
Truesdell, A. O. Powell, C. L. Annus,
A. A. Swenson, H. Fenstrom, A. 11.
Hogeland, B. Hunt, B. J. Johnson, F.
VV. McCoy, J. D. Esterbrook, W. W.
Curtis and George Wilson. Everyone
was unanimous, in declaring it was the
most pleasant meeting of the kind that
had ever been held.
Stole Woolen Stockings. *
About 8:30 last evening a young man
seized a package of woolen stockings,
which was fastened to a show case in
front of the dry goods store of J. C.
Harper & Co., 519 Washington avenue
south, and in trying to get them loose
pulled over the show- case, which, fall
ing oh the stone pavement, was badly
broken and the contents scattered over
the sidewalk. He then ran up , Sixth

proprietor of the store, and was finally
arrested on Third street, near Fifth

i The Nicollet house has been annoyed
of late by the antics Of a religious en

morning County Commissioner Lennon,
who wears a fur collar and a slouch hat,
entered the hotel for the purpose of get

was not open,so he was loitering about,
and was not a little astonished when he
found himsel confronted by a six-footer,
"Now just amble out of here. You've
been making enough trouble."
"What do you mean? I'm a gentle

The porter was a man of action rather
than words, and the next instant Mr.

not to enter again. His anger and mor
tification knew no bounds until matters
were explained later in the day.

MARY WAS SATISFIED,
But Canty Was Not, and Sues for
Thomas Canty has commenced an ac
tion against the Minneapolis, Lyndale
& Minnetonka Hail way company for
$1,000. He claims that Dec. 10 Mary A.
Kinney took passage on one of the de
fendant's trains at Washington avenue
and rode to Twenty-ninth street; while
alighting from the car it suddenly
started, throwing her violently to the
ground and seriously injuring her spine.
She then hired the plaintiff in this ac
tion to sue the defendant for 85,000 dam
ages. Shortly after the suit had
been commenced, the defendant came
to said Mary A. Kinney and offered
her $400 if she would dismiss the suit
and agree to not pay this plaintiff any
thing for the work he had done in bring
ing the suit. The said Mary A. Kinney
accepted their offer and dismissed the
action without notifying the plaintiff,
thereby defrauding and cheating him
out of what he had justly earned, which
was reasonably worth the sum of §1,(500.
The plaintiff claims that the defendants
engineered this whole scheme for the
purpose of defrauding him.

MURDERED IN A BAGNIO.
A Minneapolis Man Receives His Dsat h
Blow at Spokane Falls.
A VERY MYSTERIOUS DEATH.
Julius Schockens. the Victim— A < •
Woman Supposed to Be at the jI :
Bottom of It. I 3 1
Friends of Julius Schockens, who i
lived for some six years in Minneapolis, 1 4
are in receipt of news from Spokane .
Falls, W. T., to the effect that he was ,'
stabbed in a bagnio at that place Satur
day, March 17, receiving a wound from t •
which he died the following Tuesday. *■
The Spokane Daily Chronicle of Wed- ■
nesday, March 21, says, concerning his ;
death: . ■*** ;£-7 ;xxi.\xr
■ The cold, dead body of Julius Schockens
lies in the hospital of the Sacred Heart.
Death was caused by a knife wound on the >
leftside. The fatal blow, whether accident
ally or purposely administered.was struck an: \
Saturday night last at a bagnio known as No. ;
33, on Stevens street, between Main and '
Front. Except the dead man, no one was
present but •a • woman ■ of- the town named
Belle Earle, who claims to have known
the deceased for the past seven years. Yes
terday afternoon the injured man breathed
his last at the hospital, the woman Earle
being with him at the end.
THE WOMAN WON'T INTERVIEW.
Last night a Chronicle reporter endeavored
to get an interview regarding the matter,
but was unsuccessful. At noon to-day the
reporter called at the house by previous ap
pointment, but could get no statement from'
the woman. Friends of the dead man have
been questioned as to all the facts bearing
on the case, and they know nothing except
that the whole affair is wrapped in mystery.
At 2 o'clock this afternoon tne reporter saw
Coroner Penfield, who up to that time had
no notice that an inquest was wanted. j To
the reporter, according to what he has
learned in searching for facts connected
with the affair, he is of the opinion that for
the good of the city an inquest should be
held and a rigid inquiry made. Schockens
had only been in the city about two weeks,
during which time he was iv the employ of
S. J. Holland.
The deceased was about thirty-five
years of age and conducted a wholesale
liquor business at 1315 Washington av
enue south, in partnership with W.
Burnstein, under the firm name of J.
Schockens & Co. Afterwards he ran a
saloon at 42!) Washington avenue south.
July 27 he went to Hurley, Wis., and
engaged in the liquor business, but was
burned out. He then went to St. Paul
and opened a cigar store on Fifth street
between Robert and Jackson streets.
He left suddenly during the winter, and
it appears he ,west, although his
friends did not know his where
abouts, lie came to Minne- .
apolis in November, 1888, from
Chicago, where he has a cousin,
who is one of the firm of Levine & Co.,
liquor dealers. ' Another cousin, K.
Wolfson, lives in Kansas City, and he
has a number of relatives in St. Louis. '
The woman whom the Spokane
Chronicle speaks of as Belle Earle, is
undoubtedly Belle Currier, with whom
the deceased lived while in Minneapo
lis, at 42!) Washington avenue south.
She also accompanied him to Hurley,
where they kept house, and it is pre
sumed, either accompanied or followed
him to Spokane. She is a French
woman, who was born and raised in
Toronto. She was known to possess a
dangerous temper, and the friends of
the deceased think she may have been
either directly or indirectly responsible
for his death, notwithstanding it is as
serted that Shockens before he died
said she was in no way to blame. 'V j :

Harmonia hall to-morrow evening, March 31.
The affair will be a military one, as the
Swedish guards inteud cooperating. The
invitation committee so far has met with
great success, and therefore a large attend- ;
ance is anticipated. Among those interested
in the success of the ball are John Asplund, .
Col. J. Landberg, P. W. Edman, John F.
Peterson and C. C. Bennett.
"Eustache Baudin" is growing in popular
favor at each performance at the Pence opera
house, and the audiences are uniformly
large. The play is really a meritorious one.
with a plentiful sprinkling of comedy and
sentiment, while the cast is.in the main. most
acceptable. The company has become easy
in their lines, and the several characters are
rendered very smoothly. The scenic , effects, '
especially the mountain scene and the grave
yard scene, are remarkably good, aud assur
edly reflects credit on the scenic artist.
"Married Life," a sparkling comedy, will Ibe
the attraction the coming week, when John
Murray will appear in the cast. . j ■
A FEW PERSONAL OPINIONS.
Police Commissioner Guile— l was
very courteously invited by Mr. Janney
to be present at the meeting of the com
mission this morning, but was unable to
avail myself of the invitation. \
Lt. Gov. Rice— The winter cholera .
must be chargeable to the police com
mission, because the Minneapolis people
always pull together and . so many of
them" have it. Politics? Well, what do
you think of the old tickets?
Sheriff Swensou— No one can say, but
I may have a . hanging episode on my
hands before my term expires.
John W. Perkins— l am afraid if we
nominate Capt. Snider for congress he ;
will be defeated. There is not the least
doubt but what Fletcher would poll
more votes than :he could, and yet I
doubt even if Fletcher could be elected. -
But there is one man, who,7 if nomin
ated, would run like a steer in a corn
field, and that man is Frank F. Davis.
There would be no doubt about his elec- .
tion. : '
Edward J. Davenport, Clerk of ; Court

tating the question of whether persons
who are foreign born, but whose parents
took out their second naturalization pa
pers while they, the children, -were
minors, are required to be naturalized

state to American citizens; and those

ETHICS OF THE AVENUE.
The characteristic trait of the dudes
is to subdue themselves in everything.
The idea of displaying any emotion has
always been scoffed down by these
gentry. It has therefore been cause for
great surprise lately what has been
the reason for the unwonted *. ex
citement among the callow youths who
wear cape overcoats in this city. The
reason is about as extraordinary as their
general actions and amounts to a burn
ing desire on their part to return thanks
to the city council for the filthy condi
tion of the public streets and crossings,
ac it thereby gives them a glorious op
portunity of studying the effulgent and
iprismastic radiance of women's hose. It
is all the rage now for the boys to study
tjie mysteries beneath the skirts at the
corners, and as long as four feet of snow
in little mountains line the sidewalks
women and maidens will have to hitch
. their pretty petticoats with an upward
jerk, and lo! the dudes goiutoecstacies
at the glimpse of a pretty ankle, and
oftener still a shapely limb that is sud
denly displayed; and the women, sur
mising the cause, flash fire from
out their eyes, but smile be
tween their teeth, for if ever
there was a weakness that is
almost universal it is the weakness of
Women to show a pair of pretty ankles
should they happily own such. The
variety of stockings on exhibition is
perfectly charming— beauties of silk,
with clocks and flowers worked in by
hand, and dainty garters that peep
above humbler coverings of cotton and
wool, and original in every respect for a
woman to wear.
A Chesterfieldian "vag," who was
also an extraordinary dwarf and cripple,
approached people on Washington ave
nue north last night, and, taking off nis
hat, deprecated politely the trouble of
intruding, but he would like to have
some loose change if possible? And his
consummate gall caught on each time
A remarkable visit to the city at pres
ent is the smallest baby in creation, and
can be seen every day at the Dime
Museum. The receptions this- infantile
wonder holds are remarkable. Of
course women predominate, as they al
ways do where a baby is concerned;
but yesterday there could be observed
members of the board of. commerce
hanging around for a squint at that
baby, staid old farmers whispering
asked the mother to let them touch the
little deary, and when at last resting on
the palm of the lecturer's hand, the
little hero displayed his beautiful lines
so perfect in tlieir littleness a most edi
fying "Oh, ain't he sweet!" went up
from everybody in that crowd.

A THRILLING ADVENTURE.

Capt. Paul Boynton Gets Lest on Lake
A GREAT BATTLE FOR LIFE.
The Great Swimmer Gomes Near Losing
His Life Among the Ice on the
Chicago, March 29.— Capt. Paul
Boynton, the noted swimmer, had an
experience in Lake Michigan, Tuesday,
that he thinks he will not forget for
some time. The captain has grown
heavy during the winter, and to reduce
his flesh has recently been taking little
pulls out into the lake in his rubber
suit. Tuesday morning at 7 o'clock he
left Fullerton avenue for, a swim to
South Chicago and return, and met with
the most thrilling adventure of his life,
in which he battled for hours with a
great ice floe, was carried many miles
out in the lake, stripped of his navigat
ing instruments and lost for fifteen
hours in the cold, bleak waste
of drifting ice, hanging clouds and
straggling ducks and gulls. "When I
entered the water at 7 o'clock," the
captain said, "there was a fresh west
wind. I swam about two miles, intend
ing to clear the crib for a trip to South
Chicago. Just about the limit of my
run east I began to meet ice. I pushed
through it for a time and then ran
across some floes, onto which I climbed.
Meanwhile a heavy sky had shut out
all view of the sun and the wind had
got very high. I struggled for a while
and then ran into what I thought was a
i PULLED THROUGH IT
and came again to straggling floes. I
must have fought them until 10 o'clock
before I missed my compass. When J
looked to get my bearings, having no
ticed that the city had faded from view,
I found the band which bound the com-
Eass to my body had either been severed
y a piece of ice or had become un
buckled. It was gone. The sun
was hidden and there was noth
ing by which I could get my
bearings. The water was cold and I
had been in it so long I began to eet
drowsy. Chills ran through my veins
in quick succession, and 1 saw I must
either pull out for somewhere or perish.
I looked about and saw the field of ice
was at my feet, I swam feet foremost—
and then concluded I had only to pull to
the ice to reach Chicago. So I started,
and vigorously, too. For five hours I
worked as I never did before. The wat
er was heavy and lifeless. I had to fight
for every inch I made. Chicago was
still nowhere to be seen and I had no
notion of the time of day. Then I
changed my course about half way
round and pulled hard for a while. The
ice gathered about me again and when
I WAS FRIGIITKXED
again for my life. Sometimes I could
dodge the drift, at others I climbed
upon the cakes and crossed them.
When the moon rose I got a flash of a
view of it and then saw my mistake. 1
had crossed the field in the morning
when I entered what I thought was a
pocket and all the long pull of
the day with the ice at my feet
had driven me toward Michigan.
The turn I had taken had sent me
south. 1 set about and pushed from the
moon. At 10 o'clock 1 saw a faint light
in the sky and an hour later perceived
it was from the furnaces at South Chi
cago., Then I got my bearings and
sighted the lights at the crib. I pulled
up there at midnight and blew my bu
gle. I must have called a half dozen
times before an answer came. Then
Capt. McKay answered my signal and I.
shouted 'Crib, ahoy.' 'Aye, who's
there?' the captain answered. 'I must
stay here to-night.' 'Pull round to the
port.' When 1 got there they dropped
a bit of rope, into which I fixed my foot
and they then drew me up. . They gave
me refreshments and put me to Tied.
, Capt. McKay says when 1 left the ice at
night it was fully fifteen miles from
shore and I think he is about right, be
cause the swim in would take the time
used. I have swam greater distances
but that was the first time I ever was
lostjand the battle with the ice and cold
was a more thrilling episode than 1 care
to experience again."
